Bells Are Ringing

I can't sleep.

I'm in shock or something.

Tonight, I saw my mom and dad coming out of the Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel. They'd gotten married.

Neither one of them had even hinted that things were this serious between them, and my mom can't keep a secret to save her life.

I can't believe they didn't invite me. I mean, I can maybe see eloping and leaving the rest of the family out of it, but me? A Tom Jones impersonator was there, but not their own daughter.

I just can't believe this.

Ahh Mika my heart goes out to you. Perhaps they just got swept up in the moment. I can't imagine they planned way ahead to marry in Sin City.
I could see it being a romantic trip and then suddenly finding yourself having such a great time you head to the chapel on a whim.
Tom Jones, I would have chosen Elvis.
Anyways still your friend....

Thanks, CF. I still feel hurt, but you're probably right. And my mom is Mahsei and prone to going off on whims. My dad isn't, though. He's always been grounded, dependable, reliable.

I'm doing a little better, though. My mate's been pampering and cuddling me all day. Poor Conor. I think my reaction scared him. I shouldn't tease, though. He's been caring and attentive and consoling from the instant we ran into my parents. Few males would be this patient.

Well its nice to hear that below McCabe's rough exterior is a regular cuddly teddy-bear. (I have a hard time imagining him whispering lovey-dovey phrases like smookey-ookums to you but at least he has the talent of pampering you at the right time =).. Better be careful letting that secret out about him though.
I don't blame you for having hurt feelings. I am sure you realize that even with your dad being the grounded one...us females have a certain ..er..talent of whisping them off their feet.
Try and have fun now. You're in SIN CITY and winning money and Marc is safe....time to go to that drag show to get a few laughs. ;)

Conor has always been a teddy bear under the gruff exterior. The man has been hurt beyond belief in his life and he protects himself by keeping others at arms' length. (I could tell you stories about his mother, but it'll just piss me off.) If he wasn't extremely tender hearted, he'd never be so reclusive. And if he didn't care about others, he wouldn't have spent his adult life trying to protect humans from paranormals.

Yes, McCabe can be brusque and he tends to lay things out with less tact than the situation warrants, but I'm working on his rough edges. If you think this is bad, you should have seen what he was like before. We met when he leapt out of an alley and pinned me against the wall, his hand at my throat. In all fairness to Conor, however, I was stalking him at the time. :-)

About my parents, I suppose it was only a matter of time. My dad might be human, but he and my mom are vishtau mates. Demons can only conceive children with such a mate, so my existence is proof of that. I just wish they'd asked me to be at the wedding, that's all. I love them both and wouldn't have argued against the match.

As for Marc being safe, that's an unanswered question. He could have posted under duress. He could have been possessed by a dark demon--they indwell. The scenarios are staggering. Until we see Marc for ourselves and know that he's operating of his own free will, there's no time for fun.

Or for moping either.

Well I will remember that when dealing with Conor so he doesn't hurt my feelings. Actually, I respect someone that is more direct than wishy-washy if you know what I mean. ~ So Conor I'm sorry for pissing you off about Aslet.~
On Marc...I understand what you're saying but its relief to know he's alive. If she was going to harm him..she'd already have done it. I might sound like McCabe but maybe he just really is getting laid ;).

Just between us women, I think Conor was hurt more than angry. If he didn't care, he wouldn't have said as much as he did. He doesn't extend himself like that often.

I hope you and Conor are both right and Marc just wants to get laid and forget about the real world for a while. But I want to see him with my own eyes and I want to meet this woman. Maybe then I can relax. I have a bad feeling about this, but Marc will have to wait until later.

McCabe and I are meeting my parents for dinner tonight. We'll see what they say about eloping. It's a good thing, though, that demons are hot blooded--it's chilly in Vegas and the dress I brought wouldn't keep me warm.

Awww, I didn't think you both cared too much about little me. That makes my day. (It has been a good day so far..I got offered a new job last night, I'm getting a new tattoo, and I feel like my spunky self again so you guys just made it a better day.) =)
I agree on wanting to see Marc with my own eyes to assure he's safe but if he's feeling up to picking on Conor then he's feeling better than last time he posted ;). However, if the woman has nothing to hide she shouldn't be keeping Marc from his friends. I doubt she is too shy.
Maybe the new job will allow me to run into him or someone that knows her ;).
Good luck with dinner and the parents. I am trying to get my own plans for tonight squared away but the punk keeps standing me up.
Be thankful its only chilly in Vegas...my mom called said Nebraska hit 32 below 0 last week (thats too damn cold...thank GOD I'm in California.)
Take care and I am sorry Conor :).

Well, CF, dinner was interesting last night. There were times I felt like the parent. But I can't stay hurt--I guess. Mom and Dad were downright giddy. I think they even embarrassed Conor a few times with their PDA. Which is totally unlike my dad. He's usually circumspect in public.

So my parents are cute and in love, it's still cold here, (It's supposed to be down in the low 40s before the sun comes up tomorrow) and we're going out looking for Marc again tonight. McCabe is determined to wrap this up and get back home. I don't blame him. I'm ready to sleep in my own bed again too. Or not sleep as the case may be. ;-)

I'm glad to hear you're feeling like your usual spunky self again. I'm not quite there yet. Maybe I'll go shopping. I like that blue outfit you posted. Conor would probably like me in it too--or something similar. :-)

Good luck with the tat,
Mika

Ewww ..ick parent PDA...how vile....I don't blame Conor for being embarrassed. I would have been 4 shades of red. =)
On the blue outfit..that wasn't my favorite...the spider one is but I am wearing the blue one for a friend later tonight. I bought those in some schmitzy-ritzy shop I couldn't really afford them but a girl has to sacrafice for fashion.
I think home misses you both too. If Marc's new beau is reading any of these get him home and you need to meet his friends.
The tat...looking foreward to it I already have ink but I am too much a lady to describe what and where.
Let us know about Marc when you find more.

Re: PDA. Demons from Orcus are very open. I've embarrassed Conor myself more than once. I think he's still avoiding the Moondance Diner after what I said there. ;-)

Some things are more important than bills and a sexy outfit or two definitely fall into that category. I haven't had time to shop in Vegas. Maybe after we find Marc.

You must shop before leaving ...what do you know about Marc...still nothing?
Ooops gotta go my friend is turning off the shower and I'm going to go trap him in the bathroom.
BTW...blue outfit big success =).
